With summer officially starting on June 21, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania is kicking off its “Warm Weather Safety Minute” campaign, highlighting simple tips anyone can follow to stay safe.

Each week throughout the summer, Columbia Gas will highlight a specific topic related to natural gas safety on its website, Facebook and Twitter pages.

“At Columbia Gas, our primary focus is ensuring the safety of our employees, our customers, and the communities we serve,” said Mike Huwar, president and chief operating officer of Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania. “We encourage anyone following our social media channels or visiting our website to share the safety tips with their friends and family members in an effort to help keep everyone as safe as possible.”

The first installment explains how customers can detect natural gas using their senses of sight, smell and hearing and the importance of evacuating and calling 911 and Columbia Gas if a gas leak is suspected.

Future Warm Weather Safety Minute topics will include:

  • Calling 811 before you dig
  • Checking for employee identification
  • Driving safely in work zones

Customers can visit the News Room section of the Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania website weekly throughout the summer for the latest Warm Weather Safety Minute, along with past installments.
